Description:
To understand how the legal system works, students must consider the law in terms of its structures, processes, language, and modes of thought and argument -- in short, they must become literate in the field. Legal Literacy fulfills this aim by providing a foundational understanding of key concepts such as legal personhood, jurisdiction, and precedent, and by introducing students to legal research and writing skills.
